is you back suppose to hurt after cutting?
at my last lesson i spent some time working with one of my trainers old cutters. and i was working on having the right seat to sit a fast cutters movements.

well needles to say my mid back wear my waistline is really hurts. :-|

i was practicing keeping my seat bones in the saddle and at my waistline/mid-back curved over towards the saddle horn but not over it. now this was also my first go at it with my trainer watching and he was correcting minor seat issues i was having.

but should my back really be hurting 4 days after the cutting lesson? i have ridden another one of his younger cutters yesterday and it seems to have made the pain even worse...of course.:oops:

so is this a new muscle i have to form or is this a sign of my improper form while trying to cut?

suggestions are more then welcomed :D as this is not a comfortable feeling

Often after working on cows my back would hurt, especialy if I haven't done it in awhile. I find that the more I do it the more it gets easier. :)

I imagine your using different muscles than your used to using when riding. Like SH says the more you do it, you will adjust.

Have fun!

To be safe, you could visit a chiropractor. They are cheap and will save you a priceless amount in dr bills and liver damage from pain meds. I love going to a chiro and getting the root of my pain solved, not just masked. Feels GREAT and the lasting effects are priceless.

Ohhh, yes, chiros are good :lol: I go every now and then, if I miss an appointment I'm normally ready to kill someone...Definitely helpful though on your back, seriously. Just find one that doesn't get crackin' too bad....I like mine because he's pretty nice about it, but the first one I went to I came out in more pain than I started o.O

haha well its a good thing i see a chiro every two months. definitely couldn't hurt to get an adjustment early :)
